Should I whiten my teeth?
Whether you whiten your teeth or not is completely up to you. How do you feel about your smile? Are you proud of the way you look? If you have negative feelings about your smile, it may show through your behavior.
Often when people are self-conscious about the way their teeth look, they avoid smiling, laughing, or talking freely. Teeth whitening is an inexpensive way to boost your self-esteem and confidence when you are in social situations. Not worrying about the color of your teeth can make interacting with others more natural and easier.
People sometimes decide to whiten their teeth when they quit using tobacco. Teeth whitening is a nice reward for those who have kicked the habit because it removes all those old yellow stains that act as reminders of their old unhealthy habit. A teeth whitening gift certificate is a nice gesture to recognize someone who has quit tobacco for good. Plus, having white teeth helps you to stay away from tobacco forever.
If you are considering having restorations like crowns, fillings, or veneers, it is a good time to whiten your teeth. Because we match the shade of your natural teeth to your new dentistry, whitening your natural teeth first ensures a whiter outcome for your dentistry.
